In the opening episode of the show’s tenth season, change is on the horizon in Poplar. Sister Julienne must determine whether a private clinic venture that will generate much needed income for Nonnatus House is a suitable workplace for the Sisters, and enlists the help of Trixie. The plan causes great tension between Sister Julienne and Dr Turner who is strongly against private health care. Their first falling out in over 20 years is felt by all, in particular Shelagh who feels caught in the middle. Trixie, however, is thrilled to be challenged professionally and agrees to spend six weeks at the Lady Emily Clinic. Lucille and Sister Frances are startled when a baby boy is born without legs below the knee. Sister Frances alerts Dr Turner, who frets this could be another Thalidomide case. Perturbed by the event, he determines to uncover the cause. Meanwhile, with the Church’s financial support, Cyril moves into the flat above the Buckle’s paper shop, while Sister Monica Joan’s crisis of faith continues to weigh heavily on her mind.
